What Can A Child Custody Private Investigator Do For You

Child Custody InvestigationAs mentioned, we offer lots of services that can help an investigation. The exact ones we use will depend on the client and your case. Everything will be discussed in confidentiality prior to the investigation being carried out. Here are some of the various services our child custody private investigator can offer:

Background Checks

There are many instances where a background check is essential as part of the investigation. Perhaps your child is under the care of a parent who resides with someone with a suspicious past. You’re unsure if they’re fit to be around your child, so our investigators can conduct a background check to look for any criminal history.


A large part of our child custody investigations revolves around surveillance. Naturally, we conduct discreet surveillance of the individuals looking after your child. This will often follow a background check, particularly if we find evidence of a criminal past. However, we offer surveillance as a service on its own – it’s the best way of tracking a child and seeing how they’re being treated. We can collect a lot of hardcore evidence that serves you in good stead should you proceed to court.


Skiptracing is essential if you need to locate missing people. A child custody private investigator may need to provide this service if someone goes missing. This could be a child or a caregiver/spouse. Regardless, we use our expertise to find out where this person is and how to get in contact with them. Many people will look to skip town if they become paranoid that they’re being investigated. It’s also highly common for a partner to run away if there are child custody disputes. For instance, one parent may be ordered to pay child support to another, and they attempt to run away to avoid this commitment.

We can also help you with litigation support, asset checks, and compiling reports for courts and attorneys. This is all part of our comprehensive child custody investigations, and you can tailor the service to suit your specific case. We’re always committed to helping you get the outcome you desire!

What Can A Child Custody Private Investigator Help You Solve?

Child Custody InvestigatorsOur investigation services are useful for solving a range of different child custody issues. The most obvious one is the issue of child custody itself. Suppose you and a former partner are arguing over who deserves custody. In that case, you can hire a child custody private investigator to gather evidence against them. You may worry that they are unfit to look after your child, so we can conduct criminal background checks and surveillance to compile any relevant evidence. If it transpires that they are unfit to hold custody, we can help you take the evidence to court and present it on your behalf with a detailed report.

We can also help with issues surrounding divorce. Again, this often includes child custody, but it can also link to child support. Our asset checks, included in our background checks, are particularly helpful if a former spouse claims not to have enough money to provide you with child support. This is a surprisingly common excuse, usually with the intention of either avoiding child support payments altogether or getting much lower ones. We can investigate their assets to see if they are telling the truth. You may suspect that they have property or other investments that can go towards child support, so we will help find any evidence of this.

Of course, we also use our child custody investigations to seek any evidence you can use as part of the divorce proceedings. You may feel unsafe around your former spouse, demanding that they don’t get to see your child. In this case, a private investigator can conduct background checks and surveillance to prove any suspicions.

Furthermore, a child custody investigator is essential in issues relating to child abuse. The health and safety of a child are of the utmost importance. If you suspect that abuse is afoot, we will conduct a full-scale investigation to get to the bottom of things. A child’s safety is always our top concern, so we will do everything in our power to remain discreet and to avoid compromising their safety.
